Straightening your teeth is one of the best things you can do for your smile. Obviously, a well-aligned smile is attractive, but it will also improve your oral function and prevent the damage that can occur when teeth strike each other at improper angles. If you are an adult or an older teen, you may want to consider talking with our dentists, Dr. Scimeca, Dr. Elhady and associates, about Invisalign® clear aligners in Fairfax, Virginia.
The Invisalign system uses a series of clear aligners that have been created from digital impressions of your teeth. You will wear each set of aligners for approximately two weeks before switching to the next pair. As you progress through your treatment, your teeth will be moved horizontally and vertically and even rotated into their proper positions.
The Invisalign system is a great way to straighten your teeth without the look and feel of traditional braces. The aligners are made of clear plastic and fit snugly against your teeth, allowing you to maintain your appearance in work and social situations. They are easy to remove for meals, which means you can continue to enjoy the food you love, and you can clean your aligners with a soft-bristled toothbrush and a non-abrasive toothpaste or the cleaning solution we can give you. Dr. Elhady is the number one Invisalign provider for our area and you can learn more about the Invisalign system when you call Oakton Family Dentistry at 703-281-6201 to schedule your visit.
